"A thought is read and it strikes a chord or it passes through in silence. A painting appears before you and the meaning you draw from it is up to you. Music, sculpture, architecture, writing or another human being. What you get from them depends on what you bring to them." (Note from 3/2/2005)⠀

"Love yourself first - only then will you be able to love others. Does that sound trite? I don't mean it to be. I'm serious... Love yourself, be yourself, be happy with yourself, grow yourself, discover yourself. See it. Celebrate it. Share it. You're worth it." (Note from 2/23/2005)⠀

You know what we love? When our volunteers bring their friends along and get them involved.  @thisisdanielleknight has been with the OrphFund family for some time now, and she's become pretty good at roping her friends in to help out - even managing to get @melissafindley to come all the way to Uganda with her.
Thanks for all of your hardwork Danielle, OrphFund wouldn't be the same with you x

"No bird sounds save a morning dove a few houses down hooting. Quietly. Around here it's just the hum of the refrigerator and the scratch of my pen as a truck brakes at the light. Quietly. If you're up I can't hear you. I guess you'll be down soon and we'll be off to school. Quietly."⠀
.....⠀
Bob’s a morning person. He wrote to us early in the day, before the rest of the family was out of bed, because that’s the time he feels his best self. And he wanted to share that self with us - his thoughts, humor, frustration, and love. He created a brief pause in the morning so that he could write and reveal those parts of him that weren’t coming through in the hustle of getting out the door for school, or returning home from a day’s work. He made sure to find that morning pause instead. Quietly. ⠀

Today's photo shoot was everything I dreamed and more.
Cancer WILL NOT define me.
I WILL define it.
It will not conquer me.
I WILL conquer it.
I am the image bearer of my Jesus,
and I WILL make Him proud.
The path isn't gonna be easy,
but I WILL fight.
I am His warrior.
His strength lies in me.
Let's do this. 💪🏽💗

(And @adriennegerber photography- seriously- she is the most amazing person and talented photographer. I feel so blessed to have been her subject today. 💞 AND to my amazing makeup artists (Katie and Rhonda) at @rigandco ! You made my vision come to life! Thank you! 😍)

Have you read Chapter One by @thankyouaus co-founder @danielflynn88
We love everything about this book and the journey these guys have been on.  They know it's not easy, but do they give up? Hell no. Kinda like the little tribe of amazing volunteers we have here.

Thanks for the snap @thisisdanielleknight - our photo block looks perfect here x

“I wrote them. They read them... It was as simple as that. I don't think I ever would've thought to put a project together. I mean, I wouldn't have even thought to save them. Seeing the ones that went through the laundry - all damaged and destroyed - those ones I really love. For some reason they really resonate with me. Like, this was a thing so special, that even this little fragment got saved somehow. Even if the words are no longer there, this little fragment is, and it represents the whole thing. I love the idea of that."⠀

I came across this and thought I’ll share. If you can read this, you are privileged and can do a lot better as a person. It’s never too late to accept a mistake and not repeat it

So stoked to have the opportunity to head to Colorado the last few days helping with @skatetofight new project, #skatetofightsexualassault
We spent 2 days filming some of the most amazing people (and runs) and hearing about their experiences with sexual assault and how they overcome it through skating. Really eye opening to hear about all of it.
Can’t wait to see the finished product from @madeinslcproductions
Be on the lookout for the trailer dropping in the next few days!

A throwback to stacks of Bob’s sketchbooks from years past. Filled with illustrations and trails of thought that were in many ways the seedlings of future notes.⠀

“Don’t know why I sketched a bridge this morning? I was thinking of you and it just came out. Maybe it’s an architecture connection - maybe it’s a symbol of a connection to something? Like the bridge between youth and maturity that you are crossing right now. Of course if that was it I should have drawn a much longer bridge that never really reaches the other side. The road to maturity we walk on all of our lives. It’s a joy to walk it with you!” (Note from 3/11/2005)⠀

Happy Kids Day Wednesday!!!!
Today we like to honor Khloe Thompson 💜 age 10.

She has been featured online in Huffington Post, Pop Sugar, People Magazine, Upworthy, and on the talk show “The Real”. Khloe uses her charity to inspire and motivate other kids to "be the change" in their community.

"Hope for a better future for the realization of our dreams is what makes living and working hard possible. Sometimes our goals seem so far away and out of our reach. Without hope we might give up. Yet it's exactly the time when there seems to be so little reason to have hope that hope is so important to have. Work & hope go hand in hand!" (Note from 11/7/2005)⠀

A sentiment from 12-years ago yesterday that feels important to remember as we think about a year ago today. Keep workin' & hopin’. ⠀
